Lord Jagannath is a very famous God. Jagannath Puri Temple located in Odisha in India is his temple. Lord Jagannath’s brother Lord Balaram and his sister Goddess Subhadra are worshipped there. Rath yatra which generally takes place in “Ashadha” month and it falls in July-August In Gregorian calendar is celebrated with ecstatic celebrations, very huge funfare and with a supreme level of devotion towards Lord Jagannath. The journey from Jagannath Puri temple to his aunt’s house which includes His stay at the Gundicha temple and then coming back from there is known as Rath yatra.
A big and huge chariot is made by artisans and in it Lord Subhadra sits in the middle with Lord Balaram to her right and Lord Jagannath to her left. Long ropes are attached to the rath i.e. chariot .This rath is pulled by hundreds and hundreds of devotees.
Lord Jagannath,is truly the saviour of all. Without Him, the whole of the universe would be non existent. He is believed to be another avatar or form of Lord Vishnu and Of Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna and Lord Jagannath are both one and the same. They are the reincarnation of each other.

My salutations to Lord Jaganath, that,he being God Almighty Himself, graces us with His protection and love, so that we are never devoid of Him.
